The Pro Team
The Diablos Pro Team does not compete in a league.
Players are offered 1 game contracts where they are paid per game.
Players play in the game, get paid, and move on.
Signed players report to training the week of the game. Like National Team duty, called into camp the week of the match.
Games will be played only several times per year. Like an MMA fighter’s fight schedule, only fighting a few times per year.
This model attracts two-types of players:
Local players that have a full-time job, but would still like to compete at a high level and get paid to play in a game in front of fans from their hometown.
Players that are out-of-contract, looking to move on to full-time playing opportunities.
Opponents? Unrestricted play against teams across all divisions, international teams, and other non-league independents.
The club also has a U-23 Men’s Team for players looking to retain their NCAA eligibility, a Women’s Team, Competitive and Recreational Adult Teams, and Youth Teams.
The U23 Team
Players who are still in college and would not like to forfeit their NCAA eligibility have the opportunity to join our U-23 Team. Our U-23 Team meets throughout the summer from late May through July during the summer break. The U-23 Team will compete in the UPSL Midwest Conference for the 2019 season!
